    Small Self-Portrait(c. 1657) Rembrandt Harmensz. Van Rijn


    I think this is one of the most beautiful self-portraits he ever painted. The manner in which he unsparingly depicts the marks of life on his face with the help of an unbelievably free application of paint. This self-portrait conveys in a double sense an image of the destruction of the face, on one hand the destruction to which the face has been subjected by the process of aging on the other hand, it is a violation of the likeness through the brutal use of brush and paint.

    Portrait Of The Painter Karl Zakovsek(1910) Egon Schiele


    Schiele's muted palette underscoring the subject's melancholy mood. Though the sitter is dressed formal, in a three-piece suit, he is shirtless: the quintessential picture of the impoverished artist.

    i dont know if this directly fits into this thread but i love what Theo Jansen is doing right now, they called him the "DaVinci of the new age". He calls himself a kinetic sculptor, and what he does is create this massive machines that function and move just by the wind. its amazing. i advise anyone whos interested look him up on youtube.

    An art installation called Convergence by Valerie Wedel. </p>

    </p>

    The installation conveyed a sense of calmness and serenity throughout as I walked in it. I felt like I was in a waterfall or the sea, but the entire thing was captivating. There's another piece Wedel did last autumn which was similar to this one. </p>

    Some of the pictures I took in Basel (the Kljun is from the website, but it was too beautiful to omit). There are more to come!
